Falling asleep at the wheelWe have a plague of Israeli leaders falling asleep on television recently. Literally. Here's Prime Minister Ehud K. Olmert (Warning - this clip expires June 2, 2007):

For those of you with the good Hebrew who would rather hear the Channel 10 news report that showed the catnap in the original Hebrew, you can find it here. Oh yes, and for those who want to see the serious version of Olmert falling asleep, it's here.
And yes, this is more than a little symbolic.
